The Times reported “The New Year Honours represent largely the circumstances of war, and, perhaps as usual ,they also reflect human nature in an obvious form. The list is one of the rare opportunities for the public to scan the names of soldiers who have distinguished themselves is service”
The recipents of honours are displayed here as they are styled before the new honour, and arranged by honour, with classes (Knight, Knight Grand Cross, etc,) and then divisions, Military, Civil etc as appropriate.
